#55629, "RE: Reciprocating room CG #2"
In response to In response to 15


          

I have been reading Mark Chirnside's excellent "RMS Olympic" book this week. In the chapter describing the inquiry into her collision with the Fort St George in 1924, very interesting testimony was given on the procedures on how to start Olympic moving from a dead stop or turn her, or bring her to a stop was given by Olympic's Chief Engineer John Thearle. In the testimony, Thearle "describes the situation in the Engine Room in some detail" "confirming there were two clocks, an electric clock and a spring clock-mounted on one big stanchion in the centre of the main engine room." This is on page 207 in my copy of Chirnside's book. I see you have a clock above the desk, and I know this was Olympic in 1924, but I thought maybe this little detail might be interesting to you for your awesome project. Great work by the way.

Regards,
